The Popular Municipal Group in the City of Águilas presented a motion last Monday, by urgent procedure, to urge the national government to defend the educational freedoms enshrined in the Constitution, and that was scheduled to be discussed yesterday in the ordinary plenary of the month of November.
The popular councilor, Antonio Landáburu, has shown his discomfort before this refusal of the government of Mari Carmen Moreno, by preventing the motion from being debated last night "is an issue that matters to us a lot, because there are almost 1,300 students who study at the two concerted centers we have in the town. "
"All this is nothing more than a sample of the arrogance and the little mood of the Aguilas PSOE."
Landáburu has labeled "unfortunate" the fact of not wanting to even approve such an urgent procedure "if we had done so, we would have known the real position of the Aguileño socialists, but apparently they must be in line with their bosses in Madrid, with the Mr. Sánchez and have preferred not to let us speak, so that we don't have to vote against the proposal. "
Isabel Celaá, acting minister of Education and Vocational Training, on November 14 at the inauguration of the XV Catholic Schools Congress argued that "in no way can it be said that the right of fathers and mothers to choose a religious education or to choose an educational center they could be part of the freedom of education. "
This issue has generated a great social alarm because it questions that parents can choose the education of their children something that materializes when families choose an educational center and not another.
"However, this motion has already been registered again in the City of Águilas, to discuss in the next ordinary Plenary, already in January and then we will know the real position of the PSOE Government team, and if they support or not the free choice of center by families, "Landábauru has concluded.
